Adventures in the North-East

Sandra Lindsey/ September 22, 2015/ My life

(of England, that is!) Had a grand old time on our weekend away: Friday we went to Locomotion, part of the National Railway Museum.

Sandra Lindsey/ September 18, 2015/ Conference

Off on adventures with Husband this weekend, so thought I’d best scribble down some more of my thoughts about last weekend before I forget them! Sunday was a less-cram-packed day than Saturday.

Less than a week to UK Meet!

Sandra Lindsey/ September 7, 2015/ Conference

Oh my word, I am so looking forward to UK Meet this weekend. In all honesty, I’ve been looking forward to this year’s meet since I realised I couldn’t afford to go to last year’s :-( And it’s nearly here! Very much looking forward to seeing everyone, and exchanging hugs and chatter with so many wonderful people who used to
